To download the Kodi (XBMC) media center hub, go to the official Kodi website, Kodi.tv, and choose an operating system to launch the installer or relevant app store. It is available for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Android, Raspberry Pi and jailbroken iOS devices.
XBMC underwent a facelift and was reborn as Kodi. Kodi is an open-source media player that can stream media from the Internet and play media files stored on a hard drive. Users can run the program to create an all-in-one media hub on a variety of different devices using the following steps.
- Choose a host device
- Download and install the software
- Configure the program
- Connect hardware
Most computers can run Kodi; however, devices with HDMI ports, USB tuners, high-end sound cards and high-end graphics cards can make the most out of the program. Users who wish to run DVD or Blu-ray players should also ensure that the computer has an optical drive.
Download and install Kodi from the software's official website. Choose the relevant operating system and follow the prompts that pop up during the install process.
To configure the program, go into the system menu and select video and audio outputs. Select regional settings such as time, date and temperature and customize the appearance.
Choose a remote control kit that contains both a remote and receiver. Connect the receiver to the device and install the remote as instructed in the product's user manual. Alternately, connect a keyboard and mouse to the device.
